Repositions Deleuze as a forerunner to Speculative Realism

Against Continuity is the first book to demonstrate that the beating heart of Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy is a systematic ontology of irreducible, singular entities. This requires a radical break with decades of Deleuzian orthodoxy, according to which Deleuze’s metaphysics revolves around the dissolution of discrete entities into a continuous world of flows and events.

I have walked away from this book feeling that I need to rethink everything I thought I knew about Deleuze and read his work again with fresh eyes. I've been studying and teaching Deleuze for 25 years.
